Ex-Biglaw Partner Gets 7 Years for Money Laundering

By on February 7, 2018 in Criminal Law

A judge has put an end to the once-illustrious legal career of Raymond Ho, who became a partner at Arent Fox at the age of 33.

Above the Law reports on the sentencing of the one-time legal star  who the government referred to as a “prolific money launderer” who is alleged to have funneled $2.1 million through various accounts, including attorney trust accounts.

The sentencing memo summed up the case:

“After emigrating from Taiwan at a young age, he excelled in U.S. schools, earned two legal degrees, practiced law at some of the largest law firms in the country, and even opened his own patent law firm.

“The defendant, however, was not the upstart attorney his résumé would suggest. Rather, from at least March 2013 to February 2017, the defendant engaged in a large-scale money laundering scheme.”
